Light orange with good, foamy off-white head / Delicate, floral & perfumey nose of citrus, cream, and dry hops / Light to medium body with some biting hops but with good balance and fine dry finish / Stylish, floral flavors of orange, grass, cream, dry hops, banana, violets, and brett / Whatever it is, itís terrific.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2009
22oz bomber from Brewery Creek in Vancouver BC. What a totally wonderful surprise. Never sure about hybrid beers like this...Iím a bit of a style purist. The beer pours a hazy valencia orange with thick foam head. Thereís not as much as expected going on in the aroma...somewhat muted, neither tripel nor IIPA. The taste however is something else. Itís so clearly a blend of the very best qualities of each style that flowery adjectives donít really do it justice. This beer is really exceptional and worth a try if you can get a hold of it.

22 oz bottle. Pours a reddish orange color with a big frothy off white head and spotty lace. Aroma is citrus hops, spice and honey. Smooth, slightly heavy palate. Flavor is light grapefruit, yeast, biscuit w/honey and lemon zest. Complex, interesting brew.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 19, 2009
A nice looking cloudy straw colored pour with a huge creamy head. Aroma has the deep full fruity notes of a belgian trappist style, with fig and yeast, but also the lighter citrus of the american hops. Flavor is a lot of belgian yeast and spice, but properly bitter, like an imperial IPA. Very bubbly on the tongue. This is a very interesting beer, I fear the aggressive hops cover up the intricacy of its belgian character, but I give it high marks anyways for creativity.

Bottle. Split this with James. Pours honey gold, with a bit of murkiness. Thick, pungent head; off-white with a creamy texture. Aroma of hops, pine, and hints of spice. Medium body with a full finish. Very good tripel.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Aroma seems to have some spice, yeast, grassy hops and some caramel. Flavor is more green grassy hops over some brett and spices. Interesting.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Deep amber pour with a pillowy white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma, a little bread too. flavor was great. A balance of hop bitterness with a fine balance of sweetness. Excellent stuff.
